The contest ejvne between W. W. Bingham arVI Frank A. Broadwell, to decide which of then was ?K1ly elected to the office Of clerk of the district court at the lust lection, was begun before County Judge "Vlnsonhalv yesterday. Everything point to a prolonged hear ing over certain format matter before the Interesting features of the cane If It tiaa any .re reached. The fire testimony consisted of the Identification of the poll hook and the boxes containing the reg ular ballots and those which, contained the unused and spoiled ballots. The first witness was Jtimes Grace, a clerk of ejection In th First precinct of the First ward In South Omaha. Mr. Orac aid the number of baliota exceeded the names on the reglstratlrm books by three, and to even up matter the election of flolals drew out th re ' bailors, promlscu ' uty, placed them In an envelop and did not count them for cither party. Rasmus Larson, Judg of election In th First praolnct of the Second ward, said that In his precinct four spoiled ballots bad been placed In an envelepe and put In the box containing th unused and spoiled ballots and that oner of theae consisted of a ballot wherein the elector had cast his . vote for all four parties. Other wltneane Included James B. Smith, sui official In the Second of the First; T. A. Dal'ey In the Second of the Second and - .Edward Newton In th First of th Third. Charles Unltt has been named a teller for Bingham and A. L. Knab as teller toy BroatfwelL V Ctonattng th Ballots. Yesterday afternoon the counting of the vote was begun. The yotes In th First precinct of th First ward and th First of th Fourth In South Omaha were counted. Seventeen rofes In the First of th First wr laid aside because of a technicality nd Judge Vlnsonhaler will rule this morn- ng whether they may be counted of not ilne elector has, for example, placed, an a. ' :ln th circle at th head of th ballot and ppposlt th name: "Republican," thus In 'dtcatlng, to one who did hot exactly know the elector's Intentions In th matter, that he desired to vote the ticket straight. At least, that Is B. O. Burbank's claim, th Attorney for W. W. Bingham, th con testant. Further down In th sam ballot, th lectors have voted for democrats and re publicans at random, seemingly. Should the court decide that an elector by marking In th circle opposite th nam of a party thereby committed to vote the whola ticket, then th seventeen ballots wlls be entirely discarded. In the First of th Fourth seven votes wer laid asld upon th sam contin gency. Th entire vote in the First of th Fifth was not counted for the reason that th votes ' were, signed by one clerk and on judge, whereas th statute states that they hall b signed by th two judges. This matter vaa. made an Issu in a former election ' contest in this city and a ruling In accord with th above was confirmed by th suirem court. If these are thrown out Bingham will be th gainer, as Broad well had a plurality of thirty-one In the First of th Fifth at th last election.'" !

INHERIT PAPA'S SACACITY Daughters of Osnsral Managtr Isocrot If its Wis InTsstmenta INDUCE HIM "TO BUY THEM MINING STOCK They Sell Oat ar Bl Premlatn aae Then It Develops that the Stocks are Worth less. A story told at Union Paclflo headquar ters seems to bear out the belief that th children of W. H. Bancroft, the new gen eral manager ef that line, seem to have Inherited some of their father's shrewdness and business sagacity. The story goes that Mr. Bancroft two little daughters, aged 10 and 12 years, were visiting him at his office In Salt Lake City one day. During their visit a man cam In who derlred to sell their papa some mining stock. Mr. Bancroft did not take kindly to the proposition, but after the man had labored some time with the gen eral manager, on of tha little girls spok up and said: ' ' "Papa, I wish you would buy some of the stock for me; the mine has such a pretty name." Th other little girl chimed In at this Juncture and expressed a desire for som of th certificates on the same grounds that the name appealed to her. The father responded that It they were willing to glv up their savings they might be the proud possessors of a block of the stock. This . they agreed to do and th deal was made. One of the children se cured 100 worth and th other ISO. Let Go of the Stock. Time wore on and both children and the father had forgotten the stock deal, when one day a man appeared at the house and stated that he had come to buy tha stock In cAse the owners vere willing to part with It. They both considered the matter and talked It over between themselves, Anally deciding that they would not take the price offered, which would net them about 1150 each. In a short time there after another man appeared on the soene and tried to buy the stock at 250. but both of the girls refused th offer, and a week later an offer of 1300 each was mad by tha same man. yhen the last offer cam to hand a long consultation was held and a decision was reached to sell the stock. Th buyer paid the money over and it went back into the bank accounts of th children. A few daya later Mr. Bancroft spok of ths stock, it having been brought to his attention in some manner, at th dinner table, saying: "I see by ths quotations that the stock you bought In th mine, that day at my office' is worthless. Th vein has played out." "Yes, but, papa," responded both of th girls In chorus, "we have sold out." ' 'Great was the amusement of the father when he learned of the transaction which had taken place about two days before the mine was declared worthless. This story comes, direct from a close friend ,of Mr. Bancroft Jn Salt Lake City and Its truthfulness Is vouched for. CONGESTION IN THE EAST Freight Badly Tied Vp Becaase of Storms aad Western Traffic 1 Affected, Eastern railway lines have notified local representatives during the past fW daya that business for eastern points' can not be accepted with any degree of certainty of arriving at destination promptly until about the middle of the week. Traffic is very badly congested in the east on ac count of the heavy storms which have been prevailing there. Although the snow has been pretty well cleared oft In moat places, so much traffic was delayed while it was on that th roads hav all they can do for th present to get delayed shipments out of th way. Train ratings all hav been Increased to enable tha lines to get the delayed traffic moved, and for this reason none of the regular running schedules can be made. The same causes are also responsible for delays on carload shipment of westbound frleght. Frefght which Is now being received from Omaha shippers for eastern delivery Is being car ried along a division at a time, so that it may bo delivered to eastern connections when the congestion has subsided.
